The purpose of this scheme is to extend the skills of CVSS paddlers and to record their achievements. It is open to CVSS paddlers of all ages.
The preparation and assessing of paddlers achievement will be carried out within normal paddling sessions. We expect much of the teaching and assessing to be carried out by the paddler’s supporters or assistants with guidance from CVSS. As the paddler's technical skills progress, CVSS will offer more advice.
CVSS would like to thank the Canoe Foundation who sponsored the development of this scheme through the award made to CVSS in Summer 2013.
Please read the the explanatory notes below before preparing paddlers for the scheme.
